I have ADHD, and this app has really helped me handle my time blindness. I keep a Samsung Galaxy Bud in one ear when I'm around other people to not bother the notifications. Phone notifications drive me nuts, so I have those on vibrate. I really appreciate that I can have the apps notification play through the phone's music feature and not notification feature. I also appreciate that I can pick different types of notifications for different parts of the hour.

Update Speaking Timer & Voice Stopwatch Watch app much better app. I installed the app, open the app, and that's all the farther I can get. There is a full page ad and I can't get past the ad to the app. I'm a three decade computer developer. I know how to 'x' out of the ad. After restarting the ad a few times, I finally was able to enter the app. First thing you see is a pop-up informing you that there are full page ads and sometimes it does this and you just need to restart the app. Awful!

Report it to Google please. Ads are from their Admob. How a regular people know to close that ad but you cannot. And one thing to CORRECT, I informed user about the ads showing in app BUT NOT SAYING that it will block user to enter the app and ask them to restart the app - that's unacceptable. Thank you!

I *almost* like it, but it's a little too clunky to set up, and the ads give too much interference even for just the purpose of setting it up for testing it out (they interrupt after EVERY setting change); combining those two is is just too much for me. Also hated constant pop-up when silent. This is just FYI... I would want a mindful clock app to have multiple modes/segments: active in morning, silent or chime-only during day/work, active near bedtime, then silent at night.

Hi, I got what you mean. For better experience, I suggest that you turn off the internet for a moment when you create the schedule then turn it on again later (as you won't need to setup it many times, right?). For the notification, there is a way to totally turn off an app notification, please Google it for now. I will find the way to improve it.
